I am always surprised when PLASTIC LADY by Don England and Doug Conn is not mentioned.

This is a relatively easy to perform packet trick killer.

With a kicker ending that is beyond belief!

Nick Trost´s Muleshoe Gambler - I performed it last week with giant cards and the audience liked it
Mosers Miracle Monte - available from CardShark, I am sure it will replace Skinners Monte
Gypsy Monte from Tonny van Rhee - for story telling magic
The Homing Card from Trevor Lewis - if you are a comedian
Royal Scam from John Bannon - perfect for close up performances

I do twisting the aces often. For years I have been telling myself to learn Dr. Daly's because I love it. For some reason I have not. I have been doing Twisting the Aces for so long its second nature and very easy to follow for the spectators. Maybe this thread will inspire me to work with Dr Dailys some.

If I were forced to pick a gaffed packet trick I would say NFW. I love the ending and I have even gotten away with letting cards be examined at the end (just not fully examined).

I did see Double Backed by Jon Armstrong mentioned and I can't wait to look into that. I have not seen it and I love Armstrong. His 3 Card Monty routine with the blank cards and stickers is such a beautiful routine. If that is considered a packet trick (and I don't see why not) I would put that on the list as well.

Just saw the July 19th post above. Muleshoe Gambler is credited to Nick Trost there. I just like to keep the record straight. Perhaps Nick used that title, I don't know. What I do know is that Judge Frank Price sent me The Muleshoe Gambler back in 1988 and I published it in the Sept., 1989 issue of APOCALYPSE. I didn't know of any other item with that name at that time, nor have I heard of one since until now. I also perform and teach The Muleshoe Gambler in one of my "Best Ever" DVD volumes. It's one heck of a routine. Is that the one you're talking about, Abrell? HL.

The Nick Trost version uses gaffed cards and can be found in Nick Trost's Subtle Card Creations ~ Volume One, page 160, Trost on "The Muleshoe Gambler. Credits are given.

Cameron Francis mentioned Kaleidoscope (by Roy Walton) in an earlier post to this thread. It is a very nice packet effect. It is direct, pretty quick and uses one move known to most card workers. And, as Cameron mentioned,it is fully examinable. IMO, another advantage is that it lends itself to the creation of several different patter themes. All in all, a nice little effect. Thanks for the reminder Cameron.

If I had the book I wouldn't have asked, now would I? Or is that beyond your comprehension? Forgive me for asking such a difficult question; sorry. In any case, thanks loads for your help - I'm sure someone who has the book will give me the information. Really all quite unimportant. Again, thanks so much for your help.

Actually, a better, more succinct, to the point, response to your so helpful "Read the book" response would have been, "Answer the question." So, ignore the paragraph above this one (except for "thanks so much for your help").

Harry, as I have the book, I will help: Trost rightly credits, saying "My routine is based on Judge Frank Price's "The Mulshoe Gambler," which appeared in Apocalypse, September 1989."

In fact, in the book, the title of the trick is "Trost on "The Mulshoe gambler" I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Andrew

Yes, it does, Andrew. Thank you. I should have known better than to have asked bblumen and wasted my time and everyone else's. I'd be curious as to what Trost added to Frank Price's lovely, any deck, original routine. No, I'm not asking bblumen - God forbid! Thanks again, Andrew.

Actually, the original Muleshoe Gambler is not really a "packet" trick. HL.

No problem, it is a pleasure to help you! In fact, I will help you some more. You wanted to know what Trost added, and I have the answer: where as the original routine requires the use of Brother John's Gemini Count but Trost's uses gaffed cards and uses no sleight of hand. You are right, The Mulshoe Gambler is not a packet trick to begin with and neither is Trost's version. I may be thirteen years of age, but I am very resourceful.

Hey, Andrew, thanks again. You sure sound much older than thirteen - and you sure act older than the wiseguy above! It's a pleasure to hear and see such resourcefulness from young, new, people. Keep it up, and thanks for your help. Best - Harry L.

As far as I know, it is not published. It was a marketed trick many years ago.

You can see it performed here.

An interesting variation of this effect is Robert E. Neale's Seeing What Seems, Life, Death & Other Card Tricks, pp. 237-240.

It may still be marketed by Davenports, who originally marketed it. Steve Tucker also has a variant on the effect.
